Tramedautore – XV International Festival of arthouse theater: China and its major transformations

A political noir allegory on new media, as much controlled by the government as by private corporations, The Wild boar is an award-winning production written in 2011 for the Hong Kong Arts Festival and successfully staged in 2012, which deals with the issue of self-censorship and the hectic urban development in contemporary cities. In an unspecified megalopolis that vaguely reminiscent of Hong Kong, two independent journalists find themselves investigating on the suspicious disappearance of a major historian and intellectual personality of the city: the search for evidence on the man’s slaying, a rare example of moral integrity and civic engagement, will lead them to unveil the nefarious plans of the government behind an urban “renewal” that actually forebodes deep lacerations within the city’s social fabric.

Gamla deflected stan is inspired by the city of stockholm and the bags are made with interwoven printed leather and suede.
